A MUSICAL tribute to the Rat Pack will come to Workington over the Christmas period, bringing a first for the show which has toured for 25 years.

The tribute stage production The Rat Pack: Christmas in Vegas will head to Workington's Carnegie Theatre on December 7.

The Official UK No: 1 Tribute show as voted by The Agents Association of Great Britain for three successive years, arrives direct From London’s Leicester Square Theatre, The 02 and a Royal Command Performance. 

The acclaimed David Alacey (Lovejoy & Inspector Alleyn) stars as Frank Sinatra alongside Paul Drakeley (Inside Out – BBC) as Dean Martin. They are joined by former EastEnders star and ITV's (Central News) “Mr Weather” - Des Coleman as Sammy Davis Jnr in the original Rat Pack show, now celebrating its 25th record breaking year. 

Speaking about coming to Workington, David Alacey said: "We have worked in every town in the country I think, but I don't think we have ever been to Workington.

"We have been touring for 25 years so its always nice to have a first and I think this will be our first time ever in the town."

"I started the show over 25 year ago and we have had a number of different cast members, I think the greatest thing about the show is that whoever has been in it we have managed to change and adapt to the times, we have worked with so many nice people.

"The Christmas show is the show we look forward to all year round, we tour all year round, but the Christmas show is the one we most look forward to performing."
